      We made this for guests and weren't disappointed. yum! If anything we were rather heavy on the peppers so ours packed quite a bit of heat but it was wonderful! Pleasure to make and pleasure to eat, this will get repeated for sure! Thanks!!!

      I did cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us & didn't really want a chili pepper, but substituted a tablespoon of finely chopped green chilies from a can & that gave us just a hint of heat which is what I was after ~ I like my tongue to tingle just a little rather than my whole mouth to catch on fire! Shows you what a wimp I am when it comes to Mexican foods! Anyway, we did enjoy this chicken dish & would happily make it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Very much enjoyed, although I did leave out the chillies. And I added carrots, celery, and zucchini, cutting as for stirfry, and adding with the chicken (I added the zucchini a few moments later than the other vegetables). This was delicious, quickly and easily prepared, I served it with steamed rice, a really good meal for mid-week dinners when you don't have a lot of time but it's nice to have an appealing meal! Thank you for a lovely recipe, Pets - made in your memory.
